    Planted beside each other, this threesome makes a delightful trio when they happen to bloom at the same time. The two vandas usually bloom at the same time, most of the time.

    Hello Hong. It's really just a coincidence every time. Or maybe because they are planted close together, they get the same amount of water and sunlight all the time. There are times thought that one would be in bloom while the other is not. I think the red Fuch's Delight blooms more often.

    Very beautiful. I'm so glad to see that semi-terete are back in favour again. The Thais are in the forefront of producing a lot of exciting new hybrids and using JVB and Velthuis and even the terete V Miss Joaquim. Here's hoping that the old proven studs V B P Mok, Ruby Prince, Emma van Deventer, Maurice Restrepo, Intan and others that have been 'put to pasture' come galloping back to do stud service with all new alluring strap leaved vandas and ascocendas that abound in Thailand. I may even be tempted to try seedlings and compots (yes, even at my age) if that happens.

    Yew, I couldn't agree more. The Thai breeders have done much in bring back interests in semi-teretes. The first time I saw a TMA and a JVB I was hooked.

    Lovely. It's such a great color combination. Nice that they are all in bloom at the same time. No wonder Vandaceous orchids are my favourite.
